With breathtaking ocean views to the south and a bird's eye view of Rodman's Hollow to the west, this newly renovated saltbox offers privacy, peace and quiet and a hip, relaxed atmosphere that will surely enchant young and old alike.

The space
Offering a winning combination of being well off the main road for privacy and quiet without being remote, with a huge water view and striking sunsets over Rodman's Hollow, the adjacent 230-acres of conservation land to the west, this stunning property is a short walk or bike ride away from some of the island's most dramatic and secluded beaches along with a freshwater pond perfect for swimming.

The saltbox is hip and relaxed, with a large, spacious open plan upstairs featuring a large deck for grilling and outdoor dining and a living/dining area accessed by a spiral staircase. Please note that there is no oven/stove.

There are four bedrooms: three downstairs bedrooms with patio access, two with queen beds, one with an antique full bed; plus a smaller bedroom with a twin bed. There are two full baths, one downstairs with a clawfoot slipper tub, and one upstairs. There is also a spectacular outdoor shower. Private parking for two cars is included.

Block Island is a great getaway and offers bird watching, deep sea fishing, hiking and biking. 40% of the island is conservation land, so trails are abundant. There are numerous beaches ranging from sandy, family friendly beaches to the more secluded south coast beaches popular with surfers and surfcasters. Explore the main port with its cute boutiques and a variety of dining options.

Block Island is accessible by plane (a short 15-minute flight from Westerly, RI) or by ferry. Ferries depart from Point Judith, RI; Newport, RI; Fall River, MA; New London, CT; Montauk, NY; Orient Point, NY. Car reservations are available if you book well in advance on some of the ferries. Most visitors rely on a bike or moped. I'm new to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)! I live with my husband and son in Boston, MA. We fell in love with Block Island years ago and are thrilled to be able to offer our cottage to vacationers. We hope you enjoy it!

Where you’ll be

New Shoreham, Rhode Island, United States

The property is located on the south coast of the island, well off the main road, in a quiet, secluded neighborhood adjacent to Peckham Pond. 40% of Block Island is conservation land, so there are numerous hiking trails just a short walk or bike ride away. Fresh Pond, perfect for swimming, is close by. Vail Beach, a beautiful sandy beach on the south coast is accessible from the main road by foot (about 20 minutes) or bike (5 minutes). Guests are not permitted to cut through the neighbor's property to the south in order to reach the beachhead cliffs.

I live with my husband in Boston, MA. I'm an avid gardener and part-time musician. I also teach college history. When my family and I are not enjoying the beauty of New England, we like to see other parts of the United States and travel abroad, when we can.
